Sounds like an epic trip! I got to ride an Enfield a few years back. Clutch was a bit heavy for NYC traffic (maybe my left arm is just weak), but super fun bike. If a design works, don't change it! Fully agree, same neurons fire for me on a hard lean as on a fun drop. I get that they aren't safe, but neither is surfing if you're doing it right. Enjoy your trip, get pics, that's one you'll remember forever!
